And I'm so angry about that. I had entered a contest last week on Facebook, and had a great chance of winning it last night, it was an epic battle at the end. But I lost by 3 votes. I was angry, I was a sore loser. That is, until I saw, plain as day, how the other one cheated. Yes you may vote for yourself, but you can't vote a second time for yourself using the same user name and think you're going to get away with it. That's out and out cheating, and it calls for a disqualification. The person running the contest now knows that this one cheated, and hopefully he'll do what's right, and make her votes illegal, but also disqualify her. I didn't enter a contest only to lose because someone else cheated, I really wanted the prize, could have used it. Am I right in feeling the way I do, that I was cheated out of a win that I worked so hard for? Why shouldn't I be mad when I find that someone cheated their way into a win? Hopefully the contest starter sees the light and does what's right.

Of course you are right for feeling the way you do. You worked hard to win and did so the riht way. Hopefully the person running the contest will now do the right thing!

I think I would be angry also. Does this contest let you see who voted for you? If it shows that this other person voted multiple times for herself, then she should be disqualified. I hope that the contest starter does grant you the win. Let me know the final results if you were granted the win or if they gave you the reason for not doing so. Have a great day!!!

Hi. kris182_2000. I would have been mad too. I mean really mad! If you have worked hard to get where you are at into winning, this person was wrong for having cheated. I hope that the person running the contest will do what is right and disqualify this person. Why would they cheat in the spotlight with the same user name? That is just too petty! Hopefully, once everything gets straightened out, you will be the one that has won, that should have won in the first place. So congratulations in advance! You are now looking at the next winner, which is you!

I hope the organizer would see your point and would give the win to the person who most deserve it; the one who worked hard and abide by the rules. It just normal to be mad when you know you came that close even if your opponents cheated and you stick by the rules.

Yeah hopefully the person will be disqualified as they didn't deserve to win if they cheated.If i took part in that kind of contest i would rather win fairly or lose than win by cheating.It undermines the spirit of fair competion and should be punished.

That's just natural. I'll be feeling the same way if I were you. Here you are doing your best and then there goes your competitor winning because of cheating. I'm having the same feeling now only the circumstance is different. Atleast you can and did something about it but for me it pisses me 'cause I can't do anything about it.
